Sofcon is one of the best solar design training institute in India as per the current market standard conditions. The institute is helping thousands of aspirants to accomplish their dream. It is one of the few institutes who is offering solar design training in India. The courses offered by Sofcon is very affordable to the students, as they aim to provide quality learning without too much hurting the pocket of the students.

Sofcon focuses on paying attention to every student, keeping this thing in mind, the batch size is kept very small. Professionals from the corporate sector who have experience in solar design conduct the classes. They implement the learning module in such a way that it mostly involves practical classes. As a result, the students gain enough hands-on experience, thus are famous among students. And because of this, they have got the tag of top solar training institute in India among the remaining institutes.

Sofcon is one of the top solar design training institute in India, equipped with state of art equipment. The students get to learn about the power sector for different industries, solar power codes & standards, renewable and non-renewable energies and many more.

Sofcon is one of the biggest and top 10 solar design training institute in India, who is helping students in realizing their dream and help them in achieving it. Every year thousands of students get placed in different companies. One of the most interesting point about Sofcon, they have customized not only the fess structure nut also the batch timings as well. And this helps students in attending classes at their own convenience.

They also provide live project solar design training to the students, so that with the help of extensive practical exposure they become ready for work. Where hands-on experience can prove to be of great help. Sofcon also helps students in internship programs thus offers internship training for solar design to students in different timings. Whatever time suits them can take admission in that batch. Fastrack course is also available so that students can complete the training program at earliest.
